to be making much of a difference and now you've got the white house and you've got germany and other members of the european union who are threatening more sanctions. how might that really impact the situation there? >> well, sanctions need to do two things. one, they need to punish the russians for the actions that they've already taken in annexing crimea, illegally, totally unprovoked. the second thing they need to deter the russians from further action. the russians have already gone beyond crimea. they've already sent their special forces into eastern ukraine to stir up trouble, and that's the trouble you're seeing now in eastern ukraine. it is only in eastern ukraine where the russians sent in their special forces that there's any difficulty around that country, around ukraine. the rest of the country is calm. so the sanctions which should go into effect now, the elevated sanctions, the harsher sanctions are necessary now, not waiting for two more weeks. >> the u.s., president obama had been meeting and talking with angela merkel. germany has some leverage in all this, doesn't it? it se

. >>> now, despite merkel's calls for unity on russia, germany may have some problem with harsher sanctions. 36% of germany's natural gascon assumption comes from russia. 39% of their oil comes from russia. talk about going over a well, christopher chivas is a senior political analyst with the rand corporation. good to see you. will russia use this attack on pro-russian forces, separatists, whoever they are, inside ukraine as the provocation they were really looking for to attack and take territory from ukraine. >> i wouldn't be surprised at all, tyler, if that's what's going on. this is a strategy we have seen from russia before. the strategy is basically to aid and abet violence and turmoil and use it as an excuse for some kind of intervention. they probably will claim they're doing it on humanitarian grounds, but the reality will be that the large number of forces now poised on the border of eastern ukraine will move from russia into eastern ukraine. >> what is the end game here? what do you think will happen? will ukraine be split into two countries or what? >> it's very different to pr

in germany are not favorably seen, at least by the german business lobby. let's get to john harwood at the white house with more. john? >> not seen positively by the german business community or the business community elsewhere in europe, but i expect them to talk about trying to maintain a united front on sanctions. the nsa. they will have a news conference, a press availability after their meeting around 11:45 and i think you can also expect, carl, the president to have some sort of remarks off the top about these stronger than expected jobs numbers. >> all right. john, we'll come back to you for that later this morning. john harwood at the white house. another sign of the economic recovery. the ceo of host hotels, the country's largest lodging reit, says group bookings are up. he'll join us live in just a few minutes. later on, the ceo of expedia will join us with the first reaction to earnings last night. a lot more "squawk on the street" with dows close to session highs up 48. ♪ [ banker ] sydney needed some financial guidance so she could take her dream to the next level. so
on the border this morning, germany's chancellor angela merck la -- delivers as new message this morning. >> and the jobs number shows the economy may finally be bouncing back after a brutal winter. it's the most jobs added in two years. thein employment rate plunged to 6.3%, the lowest it's been since 2008. february and march job totals were revised up by a combined 36,000. the average now for the last three months, 238,000 jobs, about 60,000 more than the average for the three months before. big winners by sectors include business services, retail, food services, construction and health care. bottom line, this number was much bigger than anticipated but it's not all good news. part of the reason that the unemployment rate is down is of course that the total labor force dropped again, this time by more than 800,000 in april after increasing by half a million. that total jobs number added a big deal. if you think about it over the last five years, april, may, june, every time it looked like the economy was bouncing back, they would just sort of suck the life out of the economic recovery
on sector sanctions that will get the attention of russia? that is a fundamental issue. is germany willing to sacrifice short-term economic growth to put pressure on president putin? that is a fundamental question that needs to be answered. >> do you think they will be able to come up with an answer? >> mohamed nailed the biggest question about the meeting today. when it comes to the next round of sanctions, the big hammer the west has had hanging over fiber over vladimir putin has been the sectoral sanctions. $50 will take a major hit, billion of imports. angela merkel is hearing from their business interests. they don't want anything to do with the sectoral sanctions. her ability to stay aligned with the president is crucial for sectoral sanctions to work and not be implemented in patchwork fashion. >> mohamed, you mentioned because the economy is getting tighter that the cost of protectionism is rising as well. >> it is interesting we have not seen protectionism happen like you would have expected when we went into a major economic slowdown. the key issue now is step-by-step this diplom
. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including former german chancellor, who is making a lot of money helping natural gas flow from russia to germany. no surprise. angela merkel is under pressure. host: one of the fundamental flaws of sanctions as a foreign-policy tool? guest: it is limited and a blunt instrument but also there is no other choice. not a lot of other alternatives. politics are flawed, too. germany is russia's's largest trading partner in the eu. they have more economic interest in the u.s. and its owing to be hard to pressure russia and a major way unless the europeans are willing to play. host: let me share what jack lew told members of congress when it came to sanctions and at russia and the wealthy individuals linked to president putin. [video clip] >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy, it is misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the period of time since russia went into crimea and since we have imposed sanctions. there has been a substantial deterioration in rush's already weak economy. we see and

, people lived in east germany constantly looking over their shoulder, wondering, which one of their neighbors was reporting on them. which am radplace had a microph? there were there hidden cameras? and people fought to get out of that. people lived under incredibly stress for that. and now we don't have that imposed on us by the government, although the nsa, notwithstanding, but we are rushing toward that voluntarily and delightfully, and maybe it's time we step back and say, do we really want to live in this technological panopticon? let's forget about donald sterling. put ourselves there. how many times a day do you have a private conversation that you really don't want to have recorded and then rebroadcast? and the technological element of this is what makes it really scary. we've always lived in a world where you could be talking to a trusted confidante, and they might repeat what you said. but that is markedly different from having yourself recorded or videotaped everywhere. and we are giving it away voluntarily. and maybe it's time that we realize we're at the bottom
laughable. today we're going to hear from a general, air force general who was there in germany as this was going down in the room. we're going to hear from him, what was happening in that room? were the facts as we knew them? and the white house just can't keep saying we were dealing with the best intelligence we had. oh, yeah? what was that intelligence? what did the military think was going down? >> so we had talking points ahod mike morell said i had no idea where that word tape came from. but you also have him dealing with offering a his services to help work something outs with the state department. that's also in these documents. >> he said that he was worried it would be embarrassing to the state department. that doesn't sound like somebody who is trying to get out the truth about what's going on in benghazi. you would the station chief himself say it had nothing to do with a video and that that led to some sort of mob that got out of control. >> one thing, you guys got to help gregory hicks 'cause his career is all screwed up because believe. but today, you're going to
. germa germany seem siemens isn't accepting that bid. >> reporter: they can solicit unsolicited bids. to that end, siemens is ready to sweeten an earlier bid, offering to swap some not all of the power assets along with cash. they called ge's offer compelling, alstom has untildown kd 2nd to make a decision. it would then seek approval of the company shareholders as well as the labor board. alstoms largest expects if offer. if approved it will immediately add to the companyings earnings eight to ten cents a share. it will mean that 75% of ge's operating mar jens will come from its industrial operations by 2016. that's important because it's targeted 70% of margins from industrial operations. so that allows it to exceed that goal. it sees $1.2 billion in cost savings. the therm am renewables and businesses would be the biggest acquisition of the ceo's 13.5 year tenure. in a statement. they say it furthers ge's strategy of expanding into industrial businesses leak power and water. now, when news of the ge bid first leaked, alstom is considered an industrial treasure. politicians were al
aggressive with the sanctions, frankly with the europe mean allies including germany. and we need to dial up the heat. it's the message that gets sent to russia with respect to iran. it's the message with respect to syria. it's the message sent to russia with respect to the nuclear arms negotiation and defense. it has a cascading effect. if you show a bully weakness, and you give them weakness, they'll take it. >> where do you stand in the right year for substantively take that on? >> i'm a supporter of reform, mark, but we're not going to get it done this year. it's going to fill into 2014. unfortunately. republicans should, if you're going to talk the talk of being the working class if we have a minimum wage, it should be reasonably adjusts from time to time, for all the republicans who talk about we're the blue color and for the workers there should be basic things that they're for, and that's one of them increases in the minimum wage. >> before we go, you heard the conversation, i won't talk about everything you guys discussed. but jeb bush, is jeb going have to trouble getting through?

of trade, especially in the energy sector. so germany, spain, italy and france are not doing anything about this because they don't want to be hit in the pocketbook. >> it affects all of these nations video. these countries do business with russia. we talked about many times the natural gas imports to russia that are really affected -- i mean from russia into europe that are really affected. that becomes a problem for initiating these sanctions. there is reporting about a break in the white house of whether to do it unilaterally or wait for everybody to speak in one voice. so far we're waiting for everybody to speak in one voice. >> we also heard the president mention that there was -- seemed limited, but high-tech assistance being sent into the region. what can you tell us about that? >> it's interesting. they haven't obviously sent any weapons into the region, but there could be some communication devices, some communications equipment that is going to the ukrainians. they are drawing the line there will not be military assistance and lethal weapon assistance to the ukrainians. the presid

you look at those other countries in terms of minimum wage and things like that, germany has no minimum wage. their unemployment is 8%. france has a big minimum wage and their youth unemployment is 20%. >> we have an experiment here in the united states because each state tries a different pattern. we see illinois and california raising taxes and we see wisconsin and texas lowering regulations and taxes. it's the latter two that are doing better than the former two. >> that's right. the example i think your citing is texas. a lot of the net new job versus been created in texas. >> let's spell it out. one third of all new created over the past ten years have been created in texas and they have been dramatically lowering regulations in texas. >> plus the legislature in the state meets every other year. that's a great idea. and also add to the list that steve rightfully put forgot. >> he cut taxes in half. he cut government spending in half and the economy, boom, grew 7% a year under calvin coolidge. tell me which hike creates a middle class job and the interesting statistic. >>
